It didn’t take long for the first photos from the set of The Mortal Instruments to surface!

These photos reveal the first day of shooting – which was today – in Toronto, Canada.

In the pics we can see Jamie Campbell-Bower (Jace) and Lily Collins (Clary) decked out in leather and/or dark clothing.

The film will be released August 23, 2013. It is based on the book of the same name by Cassandra Clare.
